Britney Spears gave fans a rare look inside her hectic life on last night’s E! documentary I Am Britney Jean.
With only four days left until the pop songstress kicks off her Las Vegas residency, Piece of Me, at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, the 32-year-old showed the preparation leading up to the Dec. 27 kickoff.
Fans saw everything it takes to create a tour. From dancer auditions and photo shoots to creative meetings and video shoots for “Work B—ch” and “Perfume," the blonde beauty doesn't just show — she takes control of it all.
EXCLUSIVE: Britney Spears' Huge Las Vegas Entourage
And when Britney isn’t too caught up with work, she tries to balance her personal and family life with her career.
So, what did we learn about the legendary Ms. Spears? We’ve rounded up her biggest reveals below:
"I’ve always been kind of shy since I was a little girl. It’s who I am to be modest. I really can’t help it. It’s like my alter ego when I get on stage. I turn into this different person. Seriously bi-polar disorder."
“I love dramatic. The very dramatic and over the top. I think cheesy is good. Extra cheesy!”
“I just want to make sure after each take that I can see the playback just so I can make sure everything is cool.”
“I would be doing interviews [in London] then start talking like they do. They would be like, ‘Oh my God that’s really good.’ My grandmother, she was from London. She was always very proper and very together….so maybe I get it from her a little bit. Hearing the sound of it just puts you in a jolly mood.”
"I love sex. I think sex is great. But I feel a little different about it now that I'm older. Sometimes I feel like I'm 20 and then sometimes I feel like I'm 50."
"Love is just an unexplainable thing and there's a saying that I have in my bathroom in Louisiana. It says 'Go beyond reason to love, for it's the only safety there is.' And it's true, you should always go beyond reason to love and to be with the person you want to be with and to be cherished and to be treasured. I think it's why we're here as people."
“I love watching people dance. I could watch people dance all day long.”
“In my first tour, I wore really ugly things…The Onyx Hotel Tour was my sexy tour. The clothes were a little raunchy at times. I wouldn’t be that promiscuous these days.”
“I’m not saying it’s good to be a b—ch, but a lot of times in this industry it’s better to speak up and say what’s on your mind, which I have a problem with.”
"It's kind of tough because the fans want a certain selection of songs to hear from me, like the old hits and stuff. I have to keep it fresh for me to do the show. I think 'Piece of Me' is popular because it's such a personal song. It's a combination of everything. It's kind of a dark period but now I look at this song from a different angle.”
“I tend to go inward when I’m under pressure. I tend to keep it all in…but I think I thrive under pressure.”
“My boyfriend understands I’m busy like all the time right now. It’s our joke right now; we hardly ever see each other. He’s just a simple guy. He’s funny. He’s passionate. He’s just a good guy. He just gets what I do, so it really kinda works out.”
“My sister is like the closest thing to me. She’s so sweet and really gifted. She’s really important to me.”
"I believe there's definitely other forces out there other than us; angels, guardians, protectors. I definitely believe in heaven. I believe there is a place beyond our wildest dreams."
"When I first started out, I didn't care what anybody thought of me, I was just happy to be there. I was like, 'This is great,' but then 10 years later I realized 'Oh my god, there's like a lot of mean things on the Internet.' But before the naiveté in the whole thing was kind of brilliant because it was like you can't really control what people think, so you can't really worry about what people think and that attitude really is the one to have.”
